    What to do with Lincecum

    So I drafted this guy #34 overall(10 team h2h scoring league) thinking it was a steal as his average draft position is around 28. Started him every start early season but towards the middle I've only tried to start him on matchups I think are good and of course you guys all know how he has been doing. I have been having faith thinking he will pick it up but there seems to be no end in sight to his bad pitching. Anyways theres plenty of pitchers out there that I can pick up in place of him. Should I drop this guy or give him a couple more starts to see how he starts the second half?

    I'd cut him loose, he looks broken this season. There should be better options on the WW in a 10 team league like you said.

    Or you could just keep him and start him when he is pitching at home, check his home/road splits.

    I'd wait a couple starts after the AS break. Who knows maybe after watching the all star game it put some motivation in him. If he blows another start though dump his ass

    Cut your losses and drop him. Either his arm or head is messed up.

    My friend has the same issue, except we are in a Keeper League. The team is bad with no stars worth keeping, so his dilemma is whether to keep him going into next year.

    Still putting up the Strike out numbers. He's got to turn it around eventually.

    Id wait a couple more starts before making a decision on him. No need to rush to judgment.

    I'd have a very hard time dropping Lincecum at this point, would definitely give him some time.

    Have to get rid of him. Across the boards his starts are on the lowest end of any MLB starter.

    I honestly think his best days are behind him.

    He peaked early in his career and I'm confident that he will not be the same pitcher he was a few years ago...

    He was great earlier tonight, but it was at home vs the Astros. Still can't say he's back just yet.

    Fade him until he proves something. Starting him is just a stab in the dark at best.
